Yesterday, Petter Granberg was placed on waivers by the Nashville Predators. The waiver wire process has completed and no team opted to pick him up. That has allowed the Predators to reassign the defenseman to the Milwaukee Admirals. He could be available for the Admirals when they face the Charlotte Checkers tomorrow night at the UW-Milwaukee Panther Arena at 7:00 PM CST.
Granberg has played 9 games this season for the Predators. For the Admirals he has played 16 games and during that time the Admirals have a record of 12-2-1-1.
With Granberg back the Admirals finally have their defensive pairings that were in place when the completed a perfect month of November that saw them never lose in regulation in 10 games. That run is what has helped cushion the blow on the past few weeks when the injuries topside have caused the Predators to resemble more of a hodgepodge of the Admirals.
This could help see the return of three left-handed shots paired with three right-handed shots which is a preferred method of Admirals head coach Dean Evason. It does put a question mark over the next steps for Rick Pinkston and Jonathan Diaby.
